Grangetown Power Station

Geotag Icon Show on map

I have marked the original location of the Grangetown Power Station built by the Cleveland and Durham Electric Company in 1906 which worked until 1937 and was finally demolished in 1969 to make way for the new steel plant. It was the first in the world to generate at 11,000 volts.

The current position of the date stone and plaque is elsewhere within the Corus site, so cannot be visited by the public.
